Tough 5-string but only at the 3rd start

ToRoSe, 01.05.2017
I ordered the bass and he came, as usual with Thomann, punctually within 2 days. Unpacked, joyfully plugged on and off we went. Brilliant! Great sound, great response and without "clink" playable! So from the factory also well set. The next day, in the daylight, but many of the small flaws in the surface. There were four immeasurable fingerprints, above the throat of the Tonbanehmers, beautifully overpainted, as well as a thick fat and deep scratch in the bridge. So, sent back, which as always totally uncomplicated went. 10 days later came the next bass. Unpacked, precisely checked, no visible defects. There was no sound, and I noticed a very loose sitting poti. Battery replacement also failed. So returned again. 7 days later came bass No. 3. This had indeed badly varnished spots (partly 1 cm clear lacquer, although the rest is so at 0,4 cm). Ultimately, I have found it sufficient and keep it, since I with it can live. But was at the halt whether the almost 800¤ for the bass are justified. Pro: -tolle sound variability - beautiful optics -Mechanics precise adjustable -Class playability and responsiveness Contra: - Very bad surfacefinishing (point deduction also to the Thomans, since the immediately in the eye and not to be overlooked). -I had to order this bass 3 times until I was quite satisfied

Real Cool Deal

Jean Michel101, 27.12.2015
A bass whose standard is not far from a luthier instrument, its versatile and manageable, discreet and neat look, quality woods, amazing price for an instrument of this quality .... This is what one wrote Some magazine about the B-4E ns ... I bought the B-5E ns ... that's exactly what ... everything is true ... nice finish, easy and comfortable handle, (set to 0.4 of curve and 2.4 to 2mm of action: no frieze.) Equa and balance microphones very effective, excellent sustain ... brief nothing to say except may the output jack which gets a little when we pose This guitar on a classic stand. I do not regret this purchase decided somewhat on a head shot. Thank you Thomann !! .
